We've come a long way, baby

Lots of weekend news, but more about that later.  It was filled with crowds.  Ugh!
But to break the monotony of faces, I began looking up.
Philly has such beautiful architecture and history. 
Like this building for example.


So long ago.  

Here's a few of 1904 events.

The first underground line of NYC subway opened with over 9 miles of track.
The Great Baltimore Fire destroyed over 1500 buildings over 30 hours.
Pablo Neruda, the Chilean poet was born.  (I love Pablo!)
Anton Chekhov died.
Dr. Seuss was born.
The ice cream cone made its debut.
James Joyce met his future wife, Nora.
The stage play Peter Pan premiered in London.
The first New York Eve's celebration is held in Times Square.
A woman is arrested for smoking a cigarette in a car on 5th Ave.

We've come a long way, baby!

Hope you're easin' into your Monday.
Until later ....
